Introduction: Paper Snowflake

These are instructions to make a paper snowflake. This can take about 5-10 minutes.




Step 1:

Get a square piece of paper. You can use any type of paper like printer, origami, construction (which I am using), or any paper that can fold easily.

Step 2:

Fold the square paper diagonally (make sure the corners are together).

Step 3:

Fold the triangle again in half.

Step 4:

Fold the triangle again, and then unfold leaving a crease in the middle.

Step 5:

Fold one side up at the halfway crease.

Step 6:

Fold the other side up at the halfway crease.

Step 7:

Turn it over.

Step 8:

Cut the top parts off to form a triangle.

Step 9:

Flip the paper over again.

Step 10:

Cut the top and the bottom of the snowflake into a V shape. Then, cut four rectangles on each side (make sure not to cut over the center fold or else in the end it won't look very good).

Step 11:

Unfold snowflake, and it is done! You can put in under something heavy like a book for a little while to make it flat.
